For us the location of this hotel was perfect. Situated in the heart of the old town and away from the noise of the new town but still within the perimeter of the moat.
Yes there's noise from the school but this is part of the fabric of the area and the everyday life. After a few days you get used to it.
Nearby there are decent restaurants so after a long day if you don't fancy the 15 minute walk in to the centre, you've got lots of choice on the doorstep.
The rooms are a decent size and the style very urban in appearance i.e. concrete finish modernised by contemporary wall paper.
Facilities are good but a little more light (so you can read) and space and hooks to put your things (like towels) in the bathroom would be helpful.
The breakfast is great with a pretty good choice.
The staff are very helpful and the owner very laid back with a dry sense of humour. They are happy to help you with recommending a restaurant, booking tours or any general advice.
We' d recommend it and would definitely go back.
